Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: distinctive opening licks

Must agree--the opening of CHINA CAT stands out more to me than any other tune

nice example of crowd reaction to those licks is the 12/29/77 Dicks Picks Vol. 10 show from Winterland...they hadn't played ChinaCat all year long & the crowd went batshit as soon as they heard those distinctive notes.

Runner up would have to be the deep opening signature notes of MORNING DEW. No mistaking that one.
